Project Description

Project / Program Description

RE-volv empowers individuals to support clean energy and combat climate change via crowdfunding
campaigns that enable nonprofit community-serving organizations to go solar, reduce their carbon
footprints, and save on their electricity bills. We train college students and community organizers to lead these campaigns and to spread the word that solar power is accessible to everyone. RE-volv is the first and only nonprofit in the U.S. to finance solar energy projects using a revolving fund raised by crowdfunded donations. The revolving fund, called the Solar Seed Fund, uses savings from one project to pay for the next, setting in motion a first of its kind pay-it-forward model for solar energy.
